of the fiery moms i know, mel robbins joining us via skype from michigan. thanks for being here, mel. >> of course, thanks for having me. >> in some ways when i looked at the study it seems to confirm what we'd already started to see with smaller, more anecdotal studies. i don't think it comes as a big surprise. but what were the main takeaways for you? >> basically there were three. this was a study from the university of melbourne where they looked at 315 same-sex parents, sanjay, and they said three things that were really important. first of all in the category of general health, well-being and family cohesion, these kids that are being raised by gay parents are actually faring better than their peers. the second thing that the study concluded was that in most of the other categories, they're doing just the same as their peers. and then finally, they took a look at stigma, and the stigma that kids being raised by gay parents face, and that is the huge issue that i think is really important to dive into because it really impacts the way that these kids feel, of course. >> i mean,
and child cruelty. joining me now, cnn legal analyst, mel robbins, and our senior legal correspondent, host from cnn "reliable sources" brian stelter. brian, it's your job to watch tv and read newspapers. i want to begin with you as far as the perspective from media. because going back to richard jewell, i remember being at those olympics and i think a lot of people forget he was cleared because he was so totally vilified. he said he lived for 88 days, afraid of being arrested for a crime he didn't commit. is that fair, that comparison, in this case? >> i understand why they are making it, because it conjures up an image in our minds that is sympathetic to this woman. oftentimes, in this news cycle we live in, an initial story is a category 5, and then the followup is a category 1. there's usually not as much attention later on. in some cases, maybe, it is comparable. but i don't -- we don't know enough in this case to know if it's really a fair comparison. >> you wrote this opinion piece on even before the statement from the lawyer, from this mother. do you stand by it, the fact th
and mel robbins, legal analyst and fellow elderly feninazi. >> carol, i do love older women. >> brian. mel, i actually -- >> 45 and older oh my for. >> elderly, i don't know. i think he needs to come one something new. he's been using the term feninazi since, what, 1912 or so? >> well i guess if we're elderly, carol that, makes him the walking dead and we should start calling him a conservapig instead of conserve 'tis. name calling aside the bottom line is we were right, we were right in saying that the comments that stephen smith said were absolutely dangerous and outrageous, and i think it just took a lot of public outcry from outside the walls of espn for espn to realize this was egregious and they needed to make a public statement about it by suspending him for a very short period of time. >> it's almost as if espn had their finger up in the air to see how people reacted to his apology on monday and then a day later decide to suspend him. to me that seems kind of fishy. i haven't heard a good explanation from anybody about why it took them an extra day to suspend them. as you all know
now to discuss all of it, mel robbins, a cnn commentator and legal analyst. marc lamont hill, cnn commenter, comedian and activist. mr. hal sparks and mandy stottmiller, editor at large for xo jane. >> are you a soccer fanatic now? >> i'm so happy america finally came around to knowing what every 10-year-old in the country has known for a very long time, that soccer can be really fun. but make no mistake about it. we are going to stop caring in about five minutes. we're too new to the sport. yeah. >> mel, you may be right. you have a point there, right? >> yes. look, in many suburbs around the country, there are children that are born wearing a pair of soccer shorts. but once they go on into high school and parents realize they're not going get recruited for college sports, their love affair with soccer ends abruptly. we don't care. we're out. you're going to watch the tune-in rates plummet, plummet, plummet, plummet. >> soccer -- as soccer ends up being more beneficial for kids in that way in that there is no end game, no pun intended, and kids grow up to be things like scientist
and mel robbins, cnn commentator and legal analyst. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> and jane, i know you've been speaking to friends of the family. we just heard from chris, one of the friends of justin ross harris. he wants to stand by his friend. you can hear that, but he is sort of saying he's looking at the evidence and he doesn't know that he can. what are these friends telling you? >> well, i spoke to chris as well last night, and there's a sense of betrayal, and that is really the essence of this story, a man who was living a double life, and what these search warrants show is that authorities have just scratched the surface of this double life, and they want to dig deep and find out what other taxic secrets were going on in the harris household. we know this sexting which the defense tried to describe as irrelevant fantasy, had been going on for a while. one of the females that he was sexting as his son roasted in the hot car was 17, but she was 16 when he had started sexting her, according to authorities. so that's going on for a while, and i rea
. >> reporter: kyung lah, cnn, long asless. >> let's bring in mel robbins to break it down. i know you can say as tigs without stumbling. >> don't count on it. >> does she have a case to make since no one was actually harmed or killed? what is their burden of proof here? >> i think she has a very winnable case here. let me break this down because it is very confusing. basically what happened first is she started getting stalked on craigslist and she thought it was her competitor, michaela. she goes to the police to say, hey, my competitor is stalking me and it's in the investigation of these craigslist ads about her that the police figure out, holy cow, she was plotting and that's the word, plotting to hire somebody to potentially take out her competitor. >> is this kind of similar to the case we saw recently here in new york, the so-called cannibal cop? i remember his defense attorney saying we don't put people in jail for their bad thoughts, their freaky thoughts. is there some similarity here? >> you're exactly right, michaela. absolutely. absolutely. great point for you to raise. let me ex
>> thanks, mel robbins, really appreciate it. >> you got it. great to see you. >>> that's all the time we have for "sg md" today, but let's keep the conversation going on twitter. @doctorsanjaygupta. >>> it's time to get you back into the "cnn newsroom" with miguel marquez. >>> you are in the "cnn newsroom." i'm miguel marquez in new york. this hour we're talking immigrati immigration. once the strength of our nation or so we like to think, the melting pot, but could it be the achilles' heel. some 11 million illegal immigrants are here and more coming every day and now many are children, in some cases running from murder an epidemic worse than anything we've seen in heamerica. all hour we're taking a look at that problem. >>> but first our top story. 130 people are reported killed in gaza after several days of bombardment from israel. this is just one of 500 buildings in gaza destroyed by the israeli military. israel calls them legitimate hamas targets. the palestinians say their water systems and power supplies have been hit and hospitals overwhelmed by more than 1,000 people

, there are other takes on this. i'm going to read a quote from cnn commentator and legal analyst mel robbins. "her baby is dead, her husband in jail for murder, her suz was sexting with several women, her marital and financial troubles have been exposed for the world to see. the world media is pork t at her door and filming her every move. how is she supposed to act? lord only knows she's a hot mess of rage, fear, grief, shock, and everything in between." jane, what do you say to that? >> i have compassion for her but i also feel it's our responsibility as journalists to advocate for a dead child who cannot speak for himself, who was left in a hot car to die a torturous death. and frankly she didn't seem to be advocating for him at the funeral, saying would i bring him back into this world? no. did it occur to me to be angry at my husband? absolutely not. so i think she's brought some of this criticism on whers some of these frankly outrageous comments at the funeral and then some of the bizarre comments that prosecutors and detectives say she made, for example, when she gets to the daycare before
pleaded not guilty. >> thanks so much. >>> let's dig in more. joining us is mel robbins, cnn commentator and legal analyst. thanks so much for being with us. really appreciate it. >> first john, good morning. >> what i want to do now is look at the where, how and why of police are doing as they investigate this case, what the responsibleas tell us. it seems to me they are trying to build a case of inconsistencies by the father, potentially catch us in a live. let's go after the medical records, going after his medical records and cooper, the baby. why in. >> first of all what, they are looking for, john, is digging for anything that might give them a clue as to motive in this case. so, for example, if you're looking at the father's medical records, what i would be looking at if i were the prosecutor in the case and the police investigating, does he have a history of mental illness? is there something going on with this guy? did he say anything to a doctor which might give a hint as to how he could possibly do something like this, if in fact it was intentional, and there's also reports th
mel r robbins here to dive into all of this. the charge manslaughter. >> yeah. >> so that means you may not have intended to kill me, but you did something that was reckless which means you knew what you were doing was risky, could hurt somebody very badly and you did it anyway. if that's what they are trying to get her for and now this is her explanation of what happened, how does it help? >> well, this is really interesting twist, if you ask me, chris, because if you dig into the details of this, what the defense is doing is they are basically saying, hey, listen, we admit, we fold, involuntary manslaughter is what she did, so they are doing what is a trick as far as i'm concerned in the did fence world, where it's like you know a magician how you distract somebody with this while you're busy doing the real thing over here. if they -- >> sleight of hand. >> yes, it is. they basically say she's guilty of involuntary manslaughter, the max is four years. that's what conrad murray, michael jackson's doctor got. >> why is she guilty of anything -- that's a horrible example. >> you want
, and cnn commentator and legal analyst mel robbins in massachusetts. good morning, beautiful. all right, doug, i'll start with you. >> hey, honey. >> what am i missing, a two-game suspension for this yet we see when guys test positive for performance enhancing drugs, what do they get, a four-game suspension? >> right, and for a lot of people i think across country two games and the corresponding $529,000 loss of salary is not enough, but i think it's important to say from the outset that to some degree you're comparing apples and oranges and what i mean is drug suspensions are in the collective bargaining agreement which means there's a pre-determined schedule of punishment. first offense is automatically four games, second is eight and third potentially an entire season. which contrast what we saw in the ray rice fact pattern, however egregious it is, it's not included which means the scope of punishment is entirely subjective. it could be 2 or 12 and there was simply no precedent for anything more than two games >> you don't need precedent. they can do it on a one-off basis. could hav
